Vegan French Toast with Caramelised Bananas and Berries Recipe
TIME TO PREPARE 10 MINUTES
TIME TO COOK 15 MINUTES
PASSIVE TIME 20 MINUTES
2 PEOPLE SERVINGS
Toasted French Bread
- Almond milk, 1 cup (235ml)
- a half teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon (Ground)
- 1 tbsp Syrup from maple trees
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds, finely ground
- It’s preferable to use 5-6 slices of bread that are 1-2 days old.
- 1 Banana, ripe
- 2 tbsp Sugar (Brown)
- 2 tbsp Coconut Oil or Vegan Butter
- Almonds, flaked
- Syrup from maple trees
Using the milling blade on my Nutri bullet, grind the chia seeds into a powder. Grinding them isn’t required; it only ensures that no intact seeds remain in the final product.
In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients for the french toast (excluding the bread) and chill for 10-20 minutes. This will give the chia seeds enough time to thicken and give the mixture an “eggy” texture.
In a large frying pan, heat a tablespoon of coconut oil over medium/high heat. Each piece of bread should be dipped in the mixture for about 20 seconds on each side. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown on both sides.
Meanwhile, prepare the bananas in a separate frying pan. Using a sharp knife, cut the ripe banana in half lengthwise. In a frying pan, heat the brown sugar and vegan butter (or coconut oil) until the sugar has dissolved. Allow the banana to soak up the caramel for about 5 minutes, or until the banana is mushy.
Serve the banana on top of the french toast and sprinkle any remaining sauce over it. Add some berries, flaked almonds, and a bit of extra maple syrup if desired. Serve right away.
